ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

The Odessa Police Department is asking for the public’s help in resolving three overnight ATM burglaries.

Around 11:15 p.m. Wednesday night, officers were called out on a report of a truck pulling a large metal object behind it on San Andreas Dr. While officers were responding to the truck, dispatch received an alarm call at the West Texas State Bank on 1500 W. University Ave.

When the other officers arrived at the bank, they saw a large hole in the wall of the building as well as a window that had been pried open.

Witnesses told police they saw a vehicle with no headlights on dragging what looked to be an ATM, hitting multiple vehicles as it traveled down San Andreas Dr.

Shortly after officers arrived, they found the ATM in an alley near the bank.

Then around 2 a.m. Thursday morning, officers responded to the Uncle’s Convenience Store in the 1500 block of South Grandview Ave for an alarm.

Authorities say investigation revealed that 2 suspects tied a chain to the back bumper of their vehicle and then attempted to pull the door from the hinges. They then used the same method to try and pull the ATM, but they were unsuccessful and ended up fleeing the scene.

At 9 a.m. police were again called out another unsuccessful attempt at stealing an ATM at the West Texas State Bank in the 2400 block of North Grandview Ave.

Police say the suspects are possibly in a tan over gold Chevrolet Silverado extended cab. The truck has a black tool box in the bed and a black heavy duty rear bumper. It also has an unreadable paper license plate and possible damage on the back left.

The other vehicle appears to be a grey or silver Chevrolet Tahoe.

The first suspect is described as a Hispanic male wearing a white mask, white gloves, a black hoodie and jeans. The second is said to be a Hispanic male wearing a white mask, white gloves, a gray hoodie and black shorts.

Anyone with information in reference to this investigation is asked to contact the Odessa Police Department or Odessa Crime Stoppers at (432) 333-TIPS.
